For the past 3 days, I have received numerous calls from 401-223-3248. They are calling my work on 2 different lines, my home, my cell & even my parents. No matter if the call goes to voice mail or if I answer the call, it is a recording. It states that it's trying to contact me to inform me I am being served for fraud. I actually returned the call yesterday. When you call, the first thing you hear is a recording that the call is being recorded & then a lady answered. They never stated their company name or their personal name. I gave the lady the case number they left on my message & when she pulled me up, she started asking me for my SS#. I told her that I would not be giving that out. She told me what the last 2 digits of my number are!! So obviously she has my information. I told her right then & there that I wanted a debt validation letter sent via US mail to my home address. She then asked me what that was. I told her that if she had plans to serve me at my home or place of business, she should have that already & that I was not giving her any personal information. She then told me that these papers would be served & to have a nice day. She then hung up on me. Today, I answered the 1st call immediately & the message today states that they need to verify my employment & home address to serve papers. I know that this is a complete scam & I have reported them to the FTC. Can anyone tell me whatelse I should be doing about this harassement??

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
